#11217 closed defect (fixed)
BUILD: --enable-release enables updates even on unsupported systems

I have reverted 581b4ca as this as the effect of disabling sparkle even if it is available.
Also the bug had already been fixed by rootfather in f204867 and 2615c68 (he even mentions in the commit message that this fixes this bug, but unfortunately it looks like he forgot to close this ticket).
Fixed in 581b4ca5947ced7c8db62147eafc54694d4a4f31
